    It was a nice start.

    It was average, but I'd prefer the artist back on newuniversal.

    This kind of sucked. Tony's Top 5 reminded me of High Fidelity. Except that was really good and this barely held my attention all the way through. The villain blew up a bunch of innocent people, executed a room full of people, and jumped from 44 stories up and was essentially uninjured. All of this should have made him interesting. It didn't. At all. "Gee, should I wear socks?" Lame.

    Also, having your psychotic mass murdering villain rant for a whole page about how evil big tobacco is wasn't terribly subtle. It's one thing to have an edict that keeps characters from smoking, but to go out of your way to turn your comics into a printed version of those annoying Truth commercials is a bit much. When I want Matt Fraction's opinions on smoking I'll ****ing ask him for them. Until then he should drop the retarded social commentary and focus on making his villains not suck.

    My biggest worry right now is that this is the second book he's on that has had Stane as the main villain. All the madness from The Order all lead to Stane. And now this book.

    Stane isn't that great a villain. But I'm trying to remain optimistic since Fraction did so well on Iron Fist.

    Just read issue #1.

    It was awesome. Best Iron Man since Extremis.

    The art looks fantastic and I like the characterizations. I never thought Pepper wore a thong. Hott.

    The concept of Stane engineering Iron Man 2.0 is cool and was well done.

    I read some of the first issue but couldn't get through it. I really didn't like it at all. :/

    I re-read the issue a couple times over the past 2 weeks. Like a lot of Fraction's stories, they get better upon repeated sittings. I honestly think the concept is awesome and really trying to make Stane a huge threat to Tony now that he's a global power now is brilliant.


    I'm totally looking forward to more.


    On that note---I'm gonna go read Extremis again.

    I liked #2. MODOG! Iron Man threw his little body into space.

    Tony and Thor meet again. He chipped the suit.

    And Manilla got wiped from the map. Poor ourchair.

    I'll be disappointed if we don't get a Legacy Hero on The Wishing Man.

    Ok....this is getting better. Keep it up Fraction.

    Just tell Larocca to draw Tony with a goatee and not a gay 70's moustache.

    The Iron Man Thor scene has made this entire book for me.

    Re: Invincible Iron Man discussion (Spoilers!)

    Nobody's commented here in a while...

    Just read the newest issue, #7, which is the epilouge to the first story arch "The Five Nightmares". This issue "guest-starred" good ole' Spidey.

    For the most part I really liked this issue, it makes me wish that Matt Fraction was part of Spidey's Brain Trust. My only complaints are probably the same that everyone else has...

    There are some serious continuity issues going on here (thanks to One More Day of course). Though, these continuity problems may not be problems because they haven't fully explained all of the mysteries from Brand New Day. But, It seems quite illogical that Stark doesn't remember Spidey's identity. Remember in JMS' run of ASM when Stark became almost a father figure to Parker? He showed up to give Pete, MJ, and Aunt May a place to live in Stark Tower. Accoding to Joe Quesada, all previous Spidey stories have still happened just without the marriage with MJ and he has his identity back.

    It's not that big of a deal, I can enjoy this issues on it's own merrits but, it really kinda bugs me. Strak was right there when Peter unmasked in Civil War. He doesn't remember? More so, he doesn't mention that he doesn't remember? Whaaaa?

    Fraction did the best he could with the situation he had.... I just wish they would get to it and explain the logical reason noone can remember who he is (especially people with close ties to him - Stark, Osbourn, ...Venom for christ's sakes!)

    But like I said, If you can get by the silly continuity blips, this is a great issue, great series, awesome close to the first story arc.

    It was explained for Amazing Spider-Man that no one at all remembers who Spider-Man really is.
